    With 81,984 enquiries about consumer-related issues brought to Scotland’s bureaux in 2003/2004, consumer scams are an issue clients and advisers are all too familiar with. Clients have been targeted with a number of sophisticated techniques, via post, email and telephone. The kinds of scams brought to bureaux range from the promise of prizes for the cost of a small claim fee, to the targeting of small business with fake information which demands fees for registration under the Data Protection Act.

One such area is the interface between Westminster’s policy on overpaid tax credits and the Scottish Executive’s policy on helping people with debt problems.
